A pleasant atmosphere here, run by a British family and served by a very friendly lady. The food was very good and plenty full the vegetables presented separately were fresh and well cooked. In all a very pleasant experience.

Ate here twice on a recent holiday and would say that it is decent pub grub. Nothing fancy. The food is fine and well cooked but fairly basic menu; Fish and chips, Scampi, Chilli, Sausages, Salmon, Chicken curry etc. Prices are reasonable with the bills for five of us including beer and soft drinks coming to 88 Euros and 96...

We managed to find a table for our party of 7 on the Tuesday night without booking when a lot of other places were full. A luck move as we had a great meal and the kids especially loved the ribs. We liked it so much we went there again on another evening. The food is simple but made very... More

We visit here every time we come to Portugal and are always extremely happy with the food and service. We have never had a disappointing experience here. Food is always filling, great value for money and tastes of home cooked goodness. The swordfish is exquisite! Impeccable restaurant and lady who runs it, will visit again soon!

Came across this restaurant by chance as it is tucked just behind the church. A very good varied menu, and some nice vegetarian options. Reserve a table if you can , as it does get busy.

Great food - swordfish cooked to perfection and lovely sticky toffee pudding that went down a treat with vanilla ice cream. Great value too! Only snag was that they don't accept cards. It's cash only which was a bit unexpected!

Thank Sarah D
